Five New York gang members plead guilty to the killing of Bronx teenager Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz

Five respected members of the Trinitarios gang have pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter in the Bronx killing of Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz four years ago.

The five men are the youngest to be convicted in the horrific, on-camera murder of the innocent 15-year-old at a Bronx bodega on June 20, 2018 that rocked New York City.

Ronald Urena; Luis Cabrera Santos, 29; Gabriel Ramirez Concepcion, 30, and Danilo Payamps Pacheco, 26, pleaded guilty on Wednesday. A fifth defendant, Jose Tavarez, 26, pleaded guilty Nov. 16, Bronx District Attorney Darcel Clark said Wednesday.

The men were among a group of 14 members of the Trinitarian gang “Los Sures” who targeted Guzman-Feliz, chasing him and dragging him from a bodega in Belmont. Five other gang members repeatedly stabbed and slashed the teen with knives and a machete, killing him, prosecutors said.

Guzman-Feliz’s killers thought he was a member of a rival gang, but the boy was just an innocent teenager.

Demanding that his son’s killers be held accountable, his mother Leandra Feliz launched a “Justice for Junior” campaign that went national, along with the gut-wrenching video of his murder.

The five men will be sentenced to between 12 and 15 years in prison, according to prosecutors, followed by post-release monitoring as part of their plea bargains.

Several of Guzman-Feliz’s more than a dozen attackers have already been found guilty and convicted.
